Visit Burkina Faso

Once called Upper Volta, the nation of Burkina Faso gained independence in 1960 after being established as a self-governing colony by France. Surrounded by 6 nations, many have found it to be a warm and welcoming place. Only a few visitors come into the country every year, but those who do can experience some of the best offerings of Western African culture that is filled with music and exploration.

Numerous music genres can be found throughout Burkina Faso. Each community tends to focus on a specific genre to make it their own. You’ll find everything from salsa to reggae to a full orchestra, depending on where you travel.

Another option for a stay in Burkina Faso is to take on a desert adventure. Guides based out of Gorom Gorom can take you into the sands on camel and some trips arrange for camping on the sand at night. Make sure to take warm clothes, good blankets, and comfortable pants.

Be sure to visit the mud mosque in Bobo-Dioulasso as well. An entrance fee for a tour is expected and religious customs must be followed, but you won’t find a better example of cultural life anywhere in the country.

Outside of the political climate, many who have visited Burkina Faso have found it to be a unique and enthralling experience. There are certain precautions that must be taken before travel, such as vaccinations, so keep this in mind while you plan your holiday. Pick your guides with equal care and this can be a stunning destination.
